The Gurkha's Daughter

Introduction by Geetika Pathania Jain

A number one bestseller in India and a shortlisted nomination for the Dylan Thomas Prize, The Gurkha’s Daughter is a distinctive debut from a rising star in South Asian literature. This collection of stories captures the textures and sounds of the Nepalese diaspora through eight intimate, nuanced portraits, taking us from the hillside city of Darjeeling, India to a tucked away Nepalese restaurant in New York City.

Prajwal Parajuly, the son of an Indian father and a Nepalese mother, divides his time between New York and Oxford, England, but disappears to Gangtok, his hometown in the Indian Himalayas, at every opportunity.

Geetika Pathania Jain is a regular contributor to India Currents and enjoys writing book and film reviews.

This event is co-sponsored by

whose goal is to provide education and a family environment for underprivileged Nepali kids at a children's home in Kathmandu.

The Care and Management of Lies: A Novel of the Great War

The New York Times bestselling author of the Maisie Dobbs series turns her prodigious talents to this World War I standalone novel, a lyrical drama of love struggling to survive in a damaged, fractured world.

By July 1914, the ties between Kezia Marchant and Thea Brissenden, friends since girlhood, have become strained--by Thea's passionate embrace of women's suffrage, and by the imminent marriage of Kezia to Thea's brother, Tom, who runs the family farm. When Kezia and Tom wed just a month before war is declared between Britain and Germany, Thea's gift to Kezia is a book on household management--a veiled criticism of the bride's prosaic life to come.

Yet when Tom enlists to fight for his country and Thea is drawn reluctantly onto the battlefield, the farm becomes Kezia's responsibility. Each must find a way to endure the ensuing cataclysm and turmoil. As Tom marches to the front lines, and Kezia battles to keep her ordered life from unraveling, they hide their despair in letters and cards filled with stories woven to bring comfort. Even Tom's fellow soldiers in the trenches enter and find solace in the dream world of Kezia's mouth-watering, albeit imaginary meals. But will well-intended lies and self-deception be of use when they come face to face with the enemy?

"There is power in subtlety. This one is a stunner."--Martin Cruz Smith, author of Tatiana and Gorky Park

Oakland - Book Club Mixer
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Thursday, July 31 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland hosts a Book Club Mixer, on Thursday, July 31st at 7pm.

Are you currently in a book group? Do you want to be in a book group? Or are you generally curious to learn more about the diverse tastes in your community and bookstore? If any of these questions apply to you, then we suggest you swing by DIESEL, A Bookstore for our Book Club Mixer. Now, “mixer” may be an old-fashioned word these days, but in this case we think it fits perfectly. There is going to be a lot happening. Fueled by drink, snacks, and the lively camaraderie of fellow readers, book group participants will have a chance to talk to others about what their group has read and loved (or, gasp, maybe didn’t like so much); book group seekers will have occasion to swap contact information with groups looking for new members or other likeminded seekers to form a new group; and we booksellers will be on hand to pitch books we think might work for your (present or potential) book group.

So come join us! As diverse as we are, with backgrounds and interests scattered across the proverbial map, we are after all united in one common passion: reading.
